About: The Jack Fruit Kathal (Grafted) Plant represents a fusion of traditional cultivation practices with modern horticultural techniques. Artocarpus Heterophyllus, commonly known as the jackfruit, finds a new dimension through grafting – a method where a selected branch (scion) from a desirable jackfruit variety is joined to a rootstock, creating a grafted tree. Originating from the lush rainforests of Western Ghats in India, the Jackfruit has transcended borders to become a global culinary sensation. Vermi Organics proudly offers this grafted variety, marrying the excellence of traditional Kathal with the advancements of horticultural science.

Benefits: The Jack Fruit Kathal (Grafted) Plant combines the inherent benefits of the jackfruit tree with the advantages of grafting. Grafting allows for the propagation of specific desired traits, such as superior fruit quality, disease resistance, and increased productivity. This method ensures that the grafted tree inherits the best characteristics of both the scion and the rootstock, resulting in a more robust and reliable plant. Enjoy not only the bountiful harvest of this tropical giant but also the assurance of enhanced performance in your garden.
